Schneider Electric is integrating an online resource of datacenter courses with Energy University, a free, online, vendor-neutral energy efficiency learning program. The inclusion of the Data Center University into Energy University brings Schneider closer to its goal of providing energy efficiency learning for all segments and industries within the next three years.

Benedict Soh, VP, IT Business, Schneider Electric Singapore, notes "The addition of Data Center University is another step in our commitment to help fill the gap in available educational resources for energy efficiency and sustainable operations." He adds, "Business leaders have a tremendous opportunity today to reduce energy consumption and costs, and the inclusion of the data center content allows for individuals in the IT space to have access to all aspects of efficiency learning."

Data Center University has existed as a highly successful e-learning program from Schneider Electric's IT business unit for the past seven years, with more than 360,000 courses taken within the resource. The 90,000 registered users of Data Center University will be migrated into Energy University, making it the second college of learning within that resource. The Data Center University name and identification will be retained.

Energy University has outpaced growth expectations since its launch in 2009. The program's 120,000+ users have taken more than 115,000 courses in 165 countries and 12 languages. The program is endorsed by 17 global professional organizations, 13 of which offer continuing education credits for members who participate in the program.

Online learning
Delivered entirely online, Energy University courses are designed to support anyone involved in the decision-making, management, planning, design, or construction of a space impacted by energy.

The online format enables those seeking to continue their education and expertise in energy management with access to content without time, travel or budget restrictions. Courses provide awareness of energy opportunities and the knowledge needed to prioritize projects, win approval, successfully acquire safe, reliable and cost effective solutions, and monitor performance to sustain significant energy savings over time.
